    Default The Rallye Dakar 2012 Thread

    Just thought I owuld start a thread to gather and catch the hype and hoop for this year's Dakar Rally in Argentine, Chile and Peru. Some exciting developments with Robby Gordon bringing on defending champion Nasser Al-Atiyah and Qatar to the Speed Hummer. And with the X-Raid Team posting a fleet of Minis it seems like it will be a Mini vs Hummer battle as yours truly had wished/predicted

    Roma and Gordon close on Peterhansel after stage eight
    Mini's Stephane Peterhansel saw his lead of the 2012 Dakar Rally cut to less than eight minutes as team-mate Nani Roma and the Hummer of Robby Gordon set the pace on stage eight.

    Roma and Gordon were separated by just five seconds at the end of the 477km stage, which traversed the Atacama desert and was the longest on this year's route.

    Roma claimed the stage honours with a time of 4h25m44s, but Gordon's efforts were enough to move him into second in the overall classification, and to within seven minutes and 36 seconds of Peterhansel. Roma lies a further five minutes back.

    "Nani [Roma] may have beaten me, but it must have been close," Gordon said. "Beating Peterhansel by seven minutes makes this a great day.

    "In all honesty, I did not attack too much, except towards the end of the stage. At any rate, I was not at my best in the first 300 kilometres, only in the last 150. I felt the others breathing down my neck, so I accelerated."

    Krzysztof Holowczyc, who had lain second before today's stage, finished third but dropped behind Gordon in the overall classification.

    He too made ground on Peterhansel however, gaining just over three minutes on his Mini stable-mate, who finished behind him in fourth.

    Nasser Al-Attiyah's hopes of defending his 2011 Dakar crown meanwhile were dealt a fresh blow shortly after the stage got underway, with the Qatari driver stopping twice in the first 64 km.

    He was able to get going both times and battled back to finish the stage in fifth, but lost eight minutes to Roma and almost three minutes to Peterhansel. He now lies over 45 minutes off the overall lead.

    Code:
    Leading positions after stage eight:

    Robby Gordon closes on Dakar Rally leader Stephane Peterhansel but Nasser Al-Attiyah retires
    Robby Gordon moved to within 5m58s of Dakar Rally leader Stephane Peterhansel by winning Tuesday's Antofagasta to Iquique stage, but the American's Hummer team-mate - and 2011 event winner - Nasser Al-Attiyah's bid for a repeat victory has ended in retirement.

    Al-Attiyah had remained optimistic that he could pull off a second straight win even when nearly three quarters of an hour behind Peterhansel at the rally's halfway point, but further issues with his Hummer - today in the form of alternator and engine problems - saw the World Rally Championship regular forced to finally withdraw from the event.

    Even as one Hummer retired, the team's chances of victory were boosted as Gordon claimed his first stage win of the 2012 Dakar, beating X-raid Mini driver Peterhansel by 1m38s to reduce the Frenchman's lead to just under six minutes.

    "We pushed, like qualifying hard, not really knowing where you're going," said Gordon. "We had a couple of big scary moments.

    "For us, we've got to make time. We're in a different position to him. He has to conserve his time and I've got to make it. We've got four days left, four real days of racing left and the Hummer's strong."

    The battle for third is also still ongoing, with Krzysztof Holowczyc's advantage over X-raid team-mate Nani Roma reduced to 2m37s after an error by the Pole today.

    Default Peterhansel is getting tarred and feathered for nerfing the stranded biker..

    The Rallye Dakar 2012 Thread - peterhansel and bike stage 9

    There was outrage in the cyber sphere the moment images and videos hit youtube showing the Frenchman Stephane Peterhansel’s MINI striking a stranded motorbike racer while they both crossed a small river. The images clearly show Perthansel hitting the poor chap and knocking down and into the river...

    Default Gordon & campbell win stage 9

    The Rallye Dakar 2012 Thread - stage robby nice

    GORDON:
    “It was a very good special for us again. Now it’s just a waiting game to see how soon Peterhansel comes behind me. On the transfer stage, I think we had him beat by about a minute and a half. But we need more than a minute and a half, so I pushed very hard on the last section, as hard as I could go the whole time and it will be interesting to see how much time we put on him because we pushed, like qualifying hard, not really knowing where you’re going. We had a couple of big scary moments. For us, we’ve got to make time. We’re in a different position to him. He has to conserve his time and I’ve got to make it. We’ve got four days left, four real days of racing left and the Hummer’s strong. 19 seconds? He made a lot of time up on me, then. I can’t believe he could catch us there, because we were going crazy. So he’s a madman; if he beats us, he’s a madman. Madder than me!”
